When I moved into this house, I brought a few pieces of furniture with me from the last house that I couldn't part with. This house is much smaller than the house the kids grew up in and while a lot of futniture didn't make it here I was determined that these would. I have moved these around several times trying to find the right spot for them and sometimes wonder if I should part with them. Yesterday it was the old treadle sewing machine cabinet which belonged to my grandmother, I had learned to sew on this machine and was always told it would be given to me, remember, my sisters don't sew. Imagine my horror when I found they had taken the sewing machine from the cabinet, it was too old was the comment I received when I asked where it was. So the poor cabinet has lived in the passage at this house, and to be honest has been in the way of through traffic. Yesterday I decided to find it a new home, the corner of the family room and kitchen looked like a good spot. As I pushed it down the passage it rattled and shook on the tiles, then settled as I pushed it into place. Yes I think it looks good, as I stood back to admire it. I have two lovely handmade tiles, made by my very clever sister-in-law several years ago positioned above it, I think I have them a bit too high though, I will have to lower them, and sitting atop the cabinet one of the small cases that I collect. I think the word that is being used a lot these days is vignette, not sure, what do you think. Next to find a home will be the curio cabinet or that will be going.
